Aug 22, 2013 - Prince Edward Island Paradise

Prince Edward Island Paradise This Island is the most beautiful place we have ever been and we have enjoyed it to the utmost. From the moment we crossed the 8 mile bridge over the Northumberland Strait onto the Island we have been totally captivated by the size and beauty of this Island Paradise. From east coast to west coast it stretches over 250 miles. North to South is approximately 50 miles. This Island was definitely laid out by a seaman because roads are laid out in a north to south, east to west grid. It’s beauty is not just...

Going East 2013

Sep 13, 2012 - Prince Edward Island

We drove this morning for 2.5 hrs. to Pichou, NB, to the Ferry that went Prince Edward Island. It think it was the biggest ferry I've ever seen. It carried cars, campers and quite a few 18-wheeler trucks. From the ferry, we watched fishing boats unloading their morning's catch into bins with a suction hose. Then the bins were loaded into an 18-wheeler with a small front-end loader. It took us 70 minutes to make the trip to P.E.I., after an emergency delay that took us back to the dock. Most of the pictures I took today are of the landscape...

Sep 12, 2012 - Moving to just below Prince Edward Island, Canada

The more we traveled today the better the weather became. We are now in Moncton, New Brunswick, just south of Prince Edward Island. The current temp is 75deg. We modified our schedule a little bit so that we could get to the island, which we plan to do tomorrow. I've made an effort to NOT take any pictures today. So, will start tomorrow with P.E.I. BTW, for those interested, I found out what Dulse is. Remember the sale sign when we were in Spencer's Island. I had googled it and found it it is basically seaweed. When the tide goes out, you...

Sep 11, 2012 - Prince Edward Island

The rain has stopped and the flood waters have receded from the campground, so today I said farewell to Nova Scotia and boarded the ferry for Prince Edward Island. We had gusty winds today which made the drive to the ferry depot a wrestling match with the steering wheel. While waiting in line to board the ferry, the bus was rocking from side to side in the wind and I thought I would get seasick before I ever got on the water. The ferry ride was a bit bumpy but I managed to make the voyage without any problems. Camping in one of PEI’s...

Jul 29, 2011 - Prince Edward Island

We left Shediac NB about 10:00 am. The drive to the Confederation Bridge was short. The bridge itself is 12.9 km long (8 miles). It was completed in 1997 at acost of $1 Billion Dollars and a toll is charged on the return trip (or you can take a ferry which is more expensive). The inevitable clouds were with us again although it was a bit warmer than yesterday. We had our first glimpes of the red soil and miles of potatoes. We are staying at Pine Hills RV Park for a week. We knew that our friends from Pacific Border, Martin and Dawn, were...

Jul 13, 2010 - Prince Edward Island

We spent the last 4 days on Prince Edward Island. This is a picture book place with a serenity that feeds the soul. In order to get to the island from the mainland, we crossed on the Confederation Bridge which is about 9 miles long and cost $56 for the RV. It is an engineering marvel. PEI is very rural with lots of lobster fishing and mussel growing. Potatoes are a major crop and McDonald's french fries are made from these potatoes. There are yellow fields everywhere from the canola that is grown. We spent a whole day on a bus tour of the...

Aug 9, 2004 - Blue Heron Highway and the Prince Edward Island National Park

The Blue Heron Drive covers the central part of the island including Charlottetown, which we had seen on entering the island, and the long silvery beaches of the North Shore. The most outstanding examples are in the Prince Edward Island National Park. The Prince Edward Island National Park was established in 1937. It protects a representative example of one of the Canada’s outstanding natural regions, the Maritime Plain, which features dune-edged beaches, barrier sand spits, forested till uplands, barachois ponds and salt marshes. In 1998,...
